The Cuyahoga County Geographic Information Systems Department manages and coordinates the use of GIS and its related technologies within Cuyahoga County. A GIS is defined as an advanced computer system capable of collecting, storing, viewing, and analyzing geographically referenced or spatial information. 'Geographically Referenced' or 'Spatial' simply means that the information can be viewed on a map and analyzed based on location and proximity. Examples of mapped places can include an address, a property parcel, a named place such as a park or neighborhood, a census block, a zip code, or a city. By taking information stored in spreadsheets & tabular databases and displaying & analyzing it on a map, a GIS becomes a powerful tool that directly supports the specialized needs of practitioners engaged in, among many others, the following fields:
- Community Planning
- Courts and the legal system
- Economic Development
- Emergency Management
- Emergency Services/Communications
- Works Health and Human Services
- Justice Affairs
- Law Enforcement
- Public Utilities
The Cuyahoga County Enterprise Geographical Information Systems Department provides world-class mapping expertise, data, and applications for those who live and work in Cuyahoga County. Operating from within the Cuyahoga County Department of Information Technology our key goals are to:
- Increase efficiencies and effectiveness of spatial data and GIS applications
- Provide a valued regional resource of spatial information and GIS expertise
- Provide regional coordination of GIS use and development
- Increase the ability of county agencies to meet their business needs.
- Continue logical, enterprise-based and business-driven development of enterprise GIS data, applications, systems, and staff
We are actively pursuing our long term goal which is to create a regional GIS environment that supports the sharing of data, GIS services, and GIS applications among county departments, area governments, utilities, private businesses, and the public. If you are interested in partnering with the Cuyahoga County GIS Department please contact us for more information.

This application is an interactive Geographical Information System (GIS) portal that provides access to mapped information such as street maps, aerial imagery, parcel addresses, tax data, political boundaries, land use and much more.
Please use the MyPlace application and feel free to send us your feedback, suggestions, and gripes about your experience. We’re always interested in knowing what you think about our work and its usefulness to you.
